Welcome to Concetta's Restroom! Have a seat if you will...
This lovely lady here is Concetta: a doll that's on a roll as far as her talents go!
The Concetta theme song:
It may be day, or it could be night-You've gotta go...
Alas! That last useless scrap is all that remains on the roll...
You look left, you look right-the shelves are bare!
You call out for help, but no one's there!
Just press the button and give a cheer!
Concetta will bring you that roll so dear!
Never fear, Concetta's here!
She'll save your rear-just: Try not to leer...
Concept: at its most basic, an automated TP roll delivery system...
-at the press of a "panic" button, Concetta herself will bring a new roll to the needy person
(In other words, no need to shout if you're all out!)
Basic development: additional functions of the Concetta system
-"hands-free" disposal of the empty roll (Lyn's "lazy user" suggestion)
-loading of a new roll onto the spindle (goes with Lyn's other "lazy user" suggestion)
-warning when the refill rolls are almost out (Athena: Uno!)
-"flashing" when the refill dispenser is empty (Cynara wanted Concetta to lift her skirt...)
(mostly suggested directly/inspired by other students)
-dispensing of the toilet paper from the spindle (it spins while user presses a switch)
-clipping (bar swings across the sheet once the desired length has been reached)
-a merry melody programmed to play...
-for the curious, it would be simple to have the system keep track of how many rolls the user has gone through...
